RB Leipzig vs PSG Match Preview and Team News
RB Leipzig played great in the group stage and had a score of three wins, two draws, and one defeat. The real leader in defense is Dayot Upamecano, who plays every game without a mistake, and every team would want a defender like this. Christopher Nkunku shows talent, significant reinforcement for Leipzig, who has excellent ball control, who can play in multiple positions, and every team needs such a player. Marcel Sabitzer is a real football pearl, and it is a pleasure to watch this guy this season. Dani Olmo creates a lot of problems with his opponents on the right flank. It’s hard to keep this guy in a one-on-one game, as he has fantastic dribbles. Emil Forsberg has scored three goals in the Champions League, and he is an excellent technician. Julian Nagelsman is the youngest manager that has ever reached this stage of the competition. Marcel Sabitzer is injured, it is a pity for this guy, as he is playing great this season.
PSG was fantastic in the group stage and deservedly won first place with five wins and one draw. They scored 17 goals in six matches, while their backline conceded only two goals. They won the title in French Ligue 1, showed strength and are deserving champions. Idrissa Gueye is a tremendous defensive midfielder who knows what he’s doing, he’s strong, and it’s not easy to take the ball away from him. Pablo Sarabia finally shows why he was brought in as a significant reinforcement. He plays excellent and creates a lot of problems for the opponent’s defense. Neymar is a football machine, and it is a real pleasure to watch this man. The Brazilian international has great dribbles, and gives his maximum in every game, all praise for him. Mauro Icardi has scored five goals, he has reasonable ball control, and the Argentine international is a great reinforcement. Thomas Tuchel can be satisfied with the game of his team, and his positive energy drives the team in every game. Kylian Mbappe is still injured, and it is questionable how much he can help his teammates.
